Derived from his bestselling text Statistics for People Who (Think They) Hate Statistics , author Neil J. Salkind presents readers with The Excel Edition ! Using the same personable and clear style that made previous editions so successful, this new edition teaches students how they can use Excel to learn the basics of statistics. This is not a text on how to use Excel, rather it illustrates how this program can make the statistics learning experience a better one. Key Features: Applies Excel to statistical techniques: Introductory chapters present Excel as an accessible tool for statistical analyses. Students are shown how to install the free Excel Analysis ToolPak to earn access to a host of new and very useful analytical techniques such as ANOVA, Correlation, Covariance, Moving Averages, Regression, and more. In addition, other Excel formulae illustrate reliability, goodness-of-fit, and Chi-square. Offers an unhurried pace and thorough presentation: Using a non-intimidating, user-friendly style, this book walks students through various statistical procedures, beginning with correlations and graphical representation of data and ending with inferential techniques and analysis of variance. Real-world examples from a variety of settings illustrate the utility of statistics and reinforce concepts introduced. Provides valuable teaching tools: Pedagogical features help present an often intimidating and difficult subject in a way that is informative, engaging, and clear. These tools include icons, tip boxes, further readings, a glossary, the famous "Difficulty Rating Scale" and "Top Ten" lists, and much more! In addition, an extensive Excel functionality is located at the back of the book. Instructor's Resources! Instructor Resources on CD are available to qualified adopters of The Excel Edition. These resources include sample syllabi, data sets, chapter overviews and objectives, chapter outlines, PowerPoint slides, discussion questions and class activities, additional resources, test items per chapter, and much more! Intended Audience: This is an excellent textbook for undergraduate and graduate students studying statistics in courses such as Introduction to Statistics, Statistics Using Excel, Data Analysis, and Research Methods. It is ideal for courses in which Excel is the primary statistical package discussed.
